Do you see with God’s eyes?
Do you choose to see the hurting? Or do you close your eyes?
Is it more about what you can get than what you can give?
I’ve been wondering why we continue to build bigger and better homes. Places to store our stuff. Stuff that will be eaten by moths or rust, or for thieves to steal.
Up the road we have a community called “Castle Hills” where every man can have his kingdom. Beautiful, outstanding homes in a well-planned community. The street names are straight from fairy tales: King Arthur’s Court, Enchanted Hill, Excalibur, Magic Mantle…
Don’t get me wrong. I’m not against wealth. I just wonder what it’s all about when we keep building our castles in the sand. Foolish dreams that seem so grand…will surely melt away, for in life’s raging storms…they can not stand (an old church song from the 70’s).
Nor’s post today got me thinking about this again. I want to see with God’s eyes. I want to be disturbed with what I see around me. I don’t want to be complacent and content to store up treasures on earth. I want to make a difference. I want to BE the difference. Not for me. And certainly not for you to say, “Wow! Look at what Michelle’s doing.”
People are hurting. The world is hurting and we have the answer for their pain.
Jesus is the answer for the world TODAY.
